Switzerland’s new US ambassador ‘fascinated’ to be in Washington

Published on 16/09/2019

Switzerland has a new ambassador to the United States, former intelligence coordinator Jacques Pitteloud. He takes over from Martin Dahinden, who is retiring. 

We caught up with Pitteloud just before he left for Washington. In this interview, he talks about Donald Trump, about his own past, and his African connections.
